The Ashden Awards
The Ashden Awards bring to light ground-breaking green energy champions in the UK and developing world and inspire others to follow. From an enterprise bringing clean stoves to rural Africa to a Cornish school embracing energy-saving across its learning and practice, our winners are passionate about bringing change to their communities and the planet. Since we were set up in 2001 we've helped more than 140 sustainable energy pioneers develop their work. Today the Awards are an internationally recognised yardstick for excellence in the field of green energy. At the heart of the Ashden Awards is a rigorous judging process culminating in a prestigious ceremony in London where prizes are presented to winners from all corners of the globe to help further their work. But what we do doesn't stop after the awards ceremony: Ashden continues supporting winners in a range of ways from our work with policy-makers, to research and analysis and events to raise awareness of their solutions. We hold up our winners as shining examples of green energy in practice. We bring their insights and know-how to a wider audience and help bring about positive changes in thinking and policy through our Knowledge Centre and the Ashden UK and International support programmes.
